"Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood."

Closing Guantánamo & the possibility of a Jail Break

With more talk from the Left, Democrats, and Obama about closing down Guantánamo and moving the Terrorists held there to the main land and into the civil court and prison system, I want to bring a very concerning scenario that keeps going through my head.
Should Obama and the Democrats close Gitmo, there is a very real danger of bringing a large number of Terrorists to the US, considering what the left believes criminals are initialed to,the risk of the terrorists escaping from a US jail or prison is very high at least 50% in my opinion
The first thing I want to bring to your attention before my scenario, is several recent high profile jail and prison escapes, my main exhibits of my point are;
• The escape of Brian Nichols on March 11, 2005, Nichols was on trial for rape when he escaped from custody and murdered the judge presiding over his trial, a court reporter, a Sheriff's Deputy and later a Federal agent. A huge manhunt was launched in metro Atlanta and Nichols was taken into custody 26 hours later. The prosecution charged him with committing 54 crimes during the escape and he was found guilty on all counts on November 7, 2008.
• The escape of eight inmates charged with violent crimes escaped from the Curry County Adult Detention Center in Clovis, New Mexico on August 24, 2008. The eight men escaped by climbing prison pipes in a narrow space inside a wall, then using home made instruments to cut a hole in the roof. The jailbreak was featured on a September 6 episode of America's Most Wanted. Four inmates remain at large as of mid-September, including a convicted killer and a man charged with murder.
• On December 15, 2007 inmates Jose Espinosa and Otis Blunt escaped from the high-security level of the Union County jail in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Espinosa was awaiting sentencing on an aggravated manslaughter charge, while Blunt was being held in lieu of bond on robbery and weapons charges. They escaped by scraping away the mortar around the cinder blocks making up the cell walls. They then smashed the block, hid the pieces in a footlocker and covered the holes with pin-up pictures. To delay knowledge of the escape, they made dummies out of sheets and pillowcases and left them in their beds. Espinosa was recaptured on Tuesday,January 8, 2008. Blunt was recaptured the following day Wednesday, January 9, 2008 in Mexico City, Mexico.
• Richard Lee McNair has escaped from custody three times, including from a federal maximum-security prison in April 2006. He was recaptured by the RCMP on October 25, 2007 in Campbellton, New Brunswick, when he was stopped while driving a stolen vehicle.
• Ralph "Bucky" Phillips. Who escaped from prison on April 2, 2006, in New York, by cutting through the ceiling in the kitchen with a can opener, on June 10 he was suspected of a shooting which ended with two troopers dead. Bucky was later caught in Warren County,Pennsylvania, on September 8, 2006, his escape led police on the largest manhunt in New York state history.
• On November 4, 2005, Texas Death Row Inmate Charles Victor Thompson escaped from the Harris County Jail by acquiring a set of street clothes and pretending to be are presentative from the State Attorney General's office to fool the corrections officers. He was recaptured two days later in Shreveport, Louisiana, 200 miles from where he escaped.
• In 1999, Leslie Dale Martin and three other inmates on Louisiana's death row escaped from their cells at the Louisiana State Penitentiary. They were caught within hours before they even managed to escape prison grounds. The four men had managed the escape with the use of hacksaws that had been smuggled in for them by a bribed corrections officer. Other corrections officers were inattentive to the inmates' two to three week efforts at cutting their cell doors and window. After the escape, two corrections officers were fired and two others were demoted.Martin was later overheard by two corrections officers plotting another escape, which included taking hostages and commandeering a vehicle to ram the prison's front gates. Martin was immediately moved to the holding cell outside the Death Chamber, a month before his execution in 2002.
• And my favorite example for ingenuity, on New Year's Eve 2007 Shannon Ray and Humberto Fortanelli escaped from the Arkansas facility with the help of DENTAL FLOSS. The following is from the AMW website, Shannon Ray told AMW's Michelle Sigona he spent the entire month of December 2007 preparing for his great escape, and his plan included a lot ofdental floss. Ray says he heard dental floss could cut through things, so he started playing with it, and that's when he figured out he could saw his way to freedom.
Ray says it only took him a few days to saw through the bar on his window with dental floss, and once he weakened the bar enough, he was able to kick it completely free.
From that point, Ray tells AMW that he started working his way through the bulletproof glass. Ray melted the top portion of the glass with a lighter, and once he ran out of fluid, Ray began to dig his way through the window. Ray says he found a piece of metal from a fence in the yard, and used that as a tool to aide his efforts.
At night, after the inmates went to sleep, Ray would cover up his window with posters and pictures, and would use toothpaste to hold the bar back in place. His idea threw all the guards off; they just thought he didn't want any sunlight to come in his cell.
On New Year's Eve 2007, once the sun went down, cops say Ray and Fortanelli slid out the window and scaled over two eight-foot tall, double razor-wired fences, and escaped to awaiting getaway car.
Ray was originally being held for Aggravated Robbery, and now, he is facing the rest of his life behind bars. Humberto Fortanelli is still on the lamb.
And those were just some of the interesting ones I found there were many more that I could add 3-5 pages worth.
Why are all of these criminals escapes important, because if we are unable to keep our ordinary murderers, rapists, pedophiles, and other criminals in jail or prison, or even death row, how can we expect to keep individuals, terrorists, who believe they are on a holy mission against us in a jail or prison state side? Several of Gitmo’s prisoners who were released retook up arms against us.
Here is my scenario, worst or best case depending on your opinion, Obama and the Democrats close Gitmo and move the detainees state side, and given “their rights” and they will more then likely be given special considerations on the demands of groups like the ACLU giving them the privacy to plain and research their method of escape, after a period of time several terrorists escape, any where between 6 up to 24, and hit a soft target, most likely a school elementary or middle, why? Simple if Hamas and Hezbollah consider the children of jews legitimate targets why wouldn’t al-Qaeda. What happens after this will depend on what city this occurs in, but what happens in the public square is easy to predict, first will be the anger at the left, democrats, and Obama for allow the terrorists a chance to do this, and then the calls for the same politicians to resign or worse, then what happens will depend on who will step up after the tragedy, this much I can guarantee you that no one left of George W. Bush will be trusted in government at lest for a generation possibly more.
At the vary least Obama should take a stand and say the risks to the Citizens of the United States are to high to risk bring them here, unfortunately I believe Obama at the very least is to chained to the far Left to do this.
God help us if it should happen.
